Adam Britton

Adam is a British-born zoologist who has lived and worked in northern Australia since 1997. His Ph.D. research was on flight dynamics and echolocation in insectivorous bats, but his passion has always been large predators and the relationship that different people have toward them. 

Adam has focused on crocodiles for three decades, and in 2006 he and his wife Erin established a private consultancy focusing on crocodiles and other wildlife. They have worked on a diverse range of field- and analysis-based projects, often employing new technology and unusual techniques to allow new insights into wildlife that’s both relevant and fascinating. Adam also runs the CrocBITE Crocodile Attack Database, and much of his work addresses human-wildlife conflict issues. He has worked extensively in recent years to train others with the skills to manage their own wildlife issues. 

Adam has worked on hundreds of natural history documentaries over the years and believes strongly in communicating science to a wide audience in an accessible manner. He’s been a keen photographer since his parents gifted him an old, manual Voigtländer camera as a child.

Adam has worked with Lindblad in Antarctica, Australia, SE Asia, Vietnam and Cambodia.
